    Thank you for posting this; it's nice to hear goodness sometimes. What do you want to debate though? :)

    But Albania was under German rule for many years during those times, this is quite surprising, i never knew about this.

    For that above, i don't know what this Kanun is. I've never heard it before, but the stuff which it says there is true. Thank you for sharing this Marble.

    Nothing. I just did not know in which other forum to put this.
    I came along this story by accident when I was just surfing on web and I thought by myself that this is remarkable and what courage those people had!
    And I also thought when someone finds something negative with Muslims involved, (like this story know about the book that gives instructions on how to beat one's wife), then it it posted, so it is only fair that when you come along something good that involves Muslims, this should also be posted.
    [Edit]Ooops, just realized General Discussion would perhaps be the proper sub-forum, would you move it dear Ssainhu? :eek:

    Who Albania?

    There were those who were called 'Ballista' they were Nazi supporters, in other words they were spies for the Nazis, they were always a minority though.

    Several decades later, Israel supplied plenty of aid in the humanitarian crisis the Muslims experienced during the war in what is now the former Yugoslavia, including to the Albanians.

    It's always amazing when people of one culture willingly help defend people of another culture. It's just heartwarming, and gives me hope. Thanks for sharing this.
